Following the setback, the ISRO grew cautious about its missions to ensure there was no failure.
The mission will be carried out with the help of GSLV Mk-III launch vehicle and aims to land on the moon's south pole. Launch window between July 9-16 & likely Moon-landing on Sept 6, 2019.
Its earlier window of launch was April, however it was pushed ahead.
The Rover will be housed inside the Lander. "We want the mission to be a success".
The rocket which will launch the mission towards the moon will be the GSLV Mk-III rocket wherein the lunar craft will be propelled into the moon's orbit via the orbiter. After launch, the modules will orbit Earth and then the respective modules will reach the lunar orbit using the orbiter propulsion module. The Lander is destined to touch down on September 6, 2019. Instruments are also mounted on the lander and orbiter for carrying out scientific experiments and for taking images of the lunar surface. The data will be sent to Earth within 15 minutes of each test.
While the orbiter of the spacecraft will go around the moon, the Vikram lander will land on the lunar surface and remain stationed as a base.
On successful landing, India will become the fourth country after the US, Russia, and China to achieve a soft landing on the moon. The October 2008-launched India's first unmanned mission to the moon, Chandrayaan-1's only contact with the moon was to shoot one of its payloads, the Moon Impact Probe (MIP), into the lunar surface to raise a lunar dust from its surface - leading to the discovery of water molecules on surface of Earth's only natural satellite, which caused much excitement among the world's space scientists. Chandrayaan operated for 312 days as opposed to the intended two years but the mission achieved 95% of its planned objectives.
